Behind the Bar: Hot Con-ny

A new group of lovebirds will steal the show on the season 2 premiere of Love After Lockup! Let’s see, there’s a virgin set to marry an inmate. A returning fan-favorite. The “mother” of all secrets. And much, more. Sip on this warm “Hot Con-ny” (get it?) as things heat up on the season opener.

Recipe: Hot Con-ny

1 Serving


3/4 cup water
1 1/2 ounces whiskey
2 to 3 teaspoons honey, to taste
2 to 3 teaspoons lemon juice, to taste
1 lemon round
1 cinnamon stick (optional, for garnish)


In a teapot or saucepan, bring the water to a simmer. Pour the hot water into a mug. Add the whiskey, 2 teaspoons honey and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Stir until the honey has disappeared into the hot water. Taste, and add 1 teaspoon honey for more sweetness if desired, and/or 1 teaspoon more lemon juice for more zing. Garnish with a lemon round and cinnamon stick (if using). Enjoy!
